their patriarch. the last brother from the family that is as close to political royalty as america has ever seen. i'm ed schultz. welcome back to msnbc's continuing coverage of the passing of senator ted kennedy. senator kennedy died in overnight hours in his home surrounded by his family, including his wife and children. nbc's anne thompson is at the kennedy compound in hyannisport, massachusetts, where well-wishers have been gathering since early this morning. anne, any word yet on funeral arrangements? >> ed, we do not know what the funeral plans are. we hope to get that information later today or perhaps as late as tomorrow. we can tell you this morning, we have seen a roman catholic priest drive into the compound. we have seen other various people go into the compound this morning, but we have not seen any family members that we recognize. we do understand that last evening, as the senator's health deteriorated, his extended family gathered here at the family compound at his -- his house which was rose and joe, his parents' house and that when he died, he was surrounded by his immediate fam
the campaign i was much maligned because we said that we should give everyone in america a $5,000 tax credit so they can go any place in america. if you live in new york and you think there's an insurance policy in arizona that's better, you're not allowed to do that? why in the world is that? and as you know, there's great disparities between the cost of health insurance, varying from one state to another. back on malpractice a second. california has enacted some real improvements, texas has enacted some real improvement. we need national change to medical malpractice. let me mention -- [ applause ] i'm not going to get into too many more details, but you know one of the great increases of costs that we have today? the readmissions to hospitals. everybody here knows someone who went into the hospital, was discharged too early and had to go back to the hospital again and the costs have dramatically increased. the problem there, my friend, is the insurance companies who know they won't pay for more than a few days. that needs to be changed as well. as you know. so i have mentioned about the risk
reflects not only the warrior spirit of the crowe people, but america's highest ideals. his name was harvey and he was here to recruit us. all of us. to join a movement and change a nation. for much of his early life, he had silenced himself. in the brief time in which he spoke and ran and led, his voice stirred the aspirations of millions of people. he would become one of the first openly gay americans to become elected to office. his message of hope, hope unashamed, hope unafraid, could never be silenced. it was harvey who said it best. you've got to give them hope. when a young sandra day graduated, she was offered just one job in the private sector. her perspective employer asked her how well she typed and told her there might be work for her as a legal secretary. i cannot know how she would have fared as a legal secretary, but she made a mighty fine justice of the united states supreme court. judge, a judge and arizona legislature, cancer survivor, she is like the pilgrim in the poem she sometimes quotes, has forged a new trail and built a bridge behind her for all young women to follo
in america in health care and fix what is broken. we've got a lot of great things about health care in minnesota and the president has repeatedly used it as an example. the mayo clinic. i'm focused on the issue how he can deliver health care more efficiently and make it more affordable for the people of this country and that is what we are working to do. i'm hopeful we will pick up some republican support and i know it's difficult for so many people who have worked on this issue for so long. we're just asking them to hang in there, to advocate for change. americans can't wait. the costs are going up and up and up and it's getting harder for regular families to afford health care. that's what i believe in the end we will triumph through the rhetoric and all of the name-calling and all of the misuse of terms and description of what is going on here. in the end, big businesses want change because they can't compete internationally. small businesses want change because they are having trouble keeping employees on health care and families want change because they are hardly afford the pr
invasion and conquest of america." good to see you both this morning. >> morning, carlos. >> bob, who did i elicit a laugh from? from pat or bob? >> you know, it's sort of a predictable title for one of pat's books, but it will probably sell a lot of books on the right and help the republican party to permanent minority status. >> i've written two books since then, bob, and that was about the immigration debate which as you recall we won pretty well. >> oh, yeah, you really won. you managed to drive that hispanic vote for the republican presidential candidate down from 44% to 35%. and republicans can't win without 40% of the hispanic vote. >> we're doing just fine right now. i notice obama's in strategic retreat, bob. >> actually, you know what? you guys have brought this to the perfect place. i didn't even need to set this up. hey, bob, i'm going to go to you first. is pat right, is the president in strategic retreat at this point midway through the august recess, and if not, what in your mind does he need to do in order to ultimately get meaningful health care reform done? >> i think he's
town halls into chaos. today, the white house fights to regain control. >>> is america off course in afghanistan? the top u.s. commander says the taliban now actually holds the upper hand while the jury is still out on whether the president's revamped strategy is taking hold. >>> nobel prize winning economist declares the world has aremembered averted a great second depression. is the government the solution? we have a terrific lineup this hour. democratic congressman and senate challenger joe sestak stops by and u.s. news and world reporter peter roth and ryan ellis and tim martin and del castilla will be with us. chuck todd is at the white house in addition and richard engel will report live from us from afghanistan. >>> recovery crews resumed operations this morning following tragic mid air collision over the hudson river. nine people were killed in the disaster involving a private plane and tourist helicopter. >>> predawn bombings in iraq killed 40 people. the blast are the latest major round of attack since u.s. forces withdrew from iraq's urban areas in june. >>> pennsylvani
plan that is right for our state and right for america. here in montana, we also know the value of an honest word. and let me tell you, there's plenty of dishonesty out there about what health care reform will or will not do. now, you've all seen the tv show, "myth busters," right? well, i've been going around the state busting myths about health care. whether it's bogus information about rationing care, cutting benefits for seniors or -- doctor and patient relationship, these outrageous myths are being questioned -- >> it appears that we're returning into technical problems at this town hall meeting in montana. it's gallatin field airport hangar. david schuster is still with me, but interesting note. senator baucus taking on first off, health insurance and what people are paying and the coverage that they're not getting. you saw pelosi and even the president now focussing the health insurance industry as perhaps the bad guy in this. >> he said it's not okay for the insurance companies to deny people with pr existing conditions coverage, it is okay for him to take a lot of contr
america is winning the war in afghanistan. what about afghan people? do they sense that things are getting better, worse, or it's just the way it's been for generations? >> well, i deal with people who are the most vulnerable people, who are hurt left and right. they lose their homes, they are struck by poverty and all that. their winning is totally different than the winning that we are talking about. what they want is taken for granted in the rest of the world. what they want, a comfortable life, a little school, a little clinic next door, fresh water. this is their winning. i am optimistic that one day, people will win that and we'll be able to get this for the people for the majority. >> so if there's one thing that for you, and again, dealing with the most vulnerable people, one thing that the united states could do differently that would help the families you're dealing with achieve those things, a little education, a little food, a little employment, a little fresh, good water, what could the united states do to make that better for you? >> more concentration on those people who hav
countries in the world, who appreciated america's role as a neighbor in the world and as someone who understand relations between our countries and why they were important. and he's incredibly popular. >> kevin, chuck todd just talked about the complexities of dealing with north korea, there's the official state media and what they have said about hillary clinton. how complicated is the diplomatic dance in bill clinton's dance, how careful he needs to be? >> he needs to be very, very careful. he needs to draw a very clear line between the case of these two journalists and the nuclear question. it's not realistic to believe what the white house is hoping for here, they would like to create a better atmosphere here. i think the white house feels it is in their best interests to have north korea come back to the table and north korea is looking for the prestige that a visit from bill clinton would be. he doesn't want to directly link these things, he doesn't want to do the things that jimmy carter did which is get involved with negotiations which should have been held between the white

striving for the days something like this would happen. it just confirms america's commitment and fairness and justice for all and of course the constitution. a very, very proud moment in which all americans can take pride. we salute the president, commend the senate. i just can't begin to tell you how proud i am and i'm sure many others are across the country for this very historic moment that has really just lifted hearts throughout this country from coast to coast and i'm sure around the world. >> thank you both very much and again, tamron, i guess we should remind our audience president obama is going to speak in ten minutes. we're also expected that harry reid will speak on the senate floor. >> he's harry reid now. >> first hispanic, the third woman, the third person of color on our supreme court. on the floor a few minutes ago, also made history by confirming someone as qualified as anyone has been to go in that court. i want to congratulate chairman leahy and the entire committee. they moved this quickly, fairly and with a great deal of dignity. i've said before that justice sotomay
about the organizing for america town halls that you also went to? was that the place that would be ground zero for pushback by the white house? >> well, it perhaps was, but one of the first ones i went to in davenport, one man said, what are we doing here? we're all democrats. shouldn't we be out there trying to change minds and votes? that's one of the challenges, sort of the outgrowth of the obama campaign movement is undergoing now, how they should take this on. they were criticized by having people go to members district offices, but what they're saying is they don't want to flood these meetings and create a confrontation, but there are some democrats who want the confrontation. the ofa group is still finding its way on this. >> clearly, a balance to be struck between trying to fight back, but also turn down the temperature, which a lot of democratic lawmakers want. for your bottom line here, is this a case where because of the pi pictures and images we've been putting on television this week, that america may have gotten a very distorted picture of what's happening in the h
. and that is really important, because we all know in america we do best when we listen. there aren't enough voices like ted's, and there's not one person who is able to bring that passion to bear. it's going to have to be all of us. i hope some on the other side as well of the aisle who will speak up when we know there are some folks not getting the attention that they deserve, whether they're disabled, veterans who are wounded, the poor, the children. it's really going to be a challenge for us. we have to step up. we have to do it. i think in his memory. >> the white house was saying yesterday that -- a colleague said when he first came to the senate as a freshman and ted kennedy brought him into the hide away tucked behind the senate press gallery and poured him a tumbler of scotch and introduced him to the old boy network. did ted kennedy reach out to young senators even the women among you and help you learn the ropes? >> the most exciting thing that happened to me when he first came to the senate in the early '90s is ted was running a bill on the floor to protect women who were trying to go t

birch society and others up front not allowing people to speak. people in america don't know what's in this bill. they are not allowed to hear what it would mean to them. that's a tragedy of great magnitude. >> i want to ask you like councilwoman slaughter said, what else did you see? what else constituted dirty tricks in addition to purging. >> tried and true facts going back many years, as congresswoman said, to scare people away from meaningful reform. it might possibly threaten insurance industry's profits. they spend millions of dollars that come from people's premiums doing focus groups determining what are the buzz terms, buzzwords, like government takeover. >> hold on that. i want to take a quick commercial break. when we come back i want to hear more from you. >> congresswoman, can you stay with us for a few more minutes. >> i can. i'm listening to 40 people on health care but i think they will put up with. >> wendell potter, whil blower another insurance industry. also a statement which we will read when we come back. two medium cappuccinos, you're ready for the mid-morn
trouble with drug gangs there as in many places in south america. and especially in the suburbs, we've been down there. gangs sort of run free and this guy sort of presented himself as somebody trying to fight that and also fight corruption. now it's the talk of the nation that he's accused of not only ordering these murders but possibly using them on his show. i mean, his show was sometimes there at the scene of crimes before the police got there. they claim that they just had great sources and they were, you know, on the inside trying to fight all of this violence. but the police say otherwise. they say he was not only involved in it, but possibly behind at least five of these murders. >> unbelievable. michelle, thanks so much. we appreciate it. tamron, what a crazy story. i guess the first tip should have been when this guy's getting there before the police, you know something. >> it sounds like a "csi" whatever those shows "law & order" kind of things. my personal favorite is a strange story. we both pause and both said wow because your mind can't process, a family business. wat

america, the middle american radicals, if you will, came out in great numbers, outraged by budget deficits and things like that, nafta, gatt, the world trade organization. but in this one, this is a crucial battle here, and passions and emotions are high. cable news, we've been consumed by it. the other shows have, talk radio has. when you get out hundreds, maybe 1,000 people in august for the congressional and senatorial town meetings i think what you've got is a great debate going on in this country, alex. those folks, especially the blue dog democrats, when they come back, they're going to decide whether this thing goes through or not. i think they're assessing who these folks are. >> julian, some democrats, they're trying to dismiss these angry crowds as the minorities pushed there by conservative groups. is that fair? >> i think it's hard to tell. and i think there's nothing at all wrong with conservatives, with republicans, with even the health insurance industry trying to generate support for their position or the grass roots. there's nothing wrong with that at all. that's part of t
